What I'm Working On

I figure I should let people who like what I write know that I've got quite a bit of stuff written and making its way through the editing/revision pipeline.

 

First off, I've got an illustrated novella coming soon. It's called TABOOGASM, and it's about a guy who wins the lottery every time he plays.

 

There's a new Halloween horror story set to premiere in an anthology this fall.

 

I also plan on releasing a full-length fantasy novel by the end of this calendar year. This will be the first in a planned trilogy. All fantasy novels come in threes, right?

 

I've written four new novellas. The first of which, BRIDES OF HANOVER BLOCK, comes out in 2017.

 

And I'm actively writing a fantasy/adventure horror novel. I have no idea when this sucker will see the light of day. I'm at around the 10% mark with this one. Early days. But it's going well.

 

So, thanks to everyone who reads my work. Just thought I'd let you know there's much more to come.

Cleveland Pipeline (The Executioner #30)
Cleveland Pipeline - Don Pendleton

Title: Cleveland Pipeline

Series: The Executioner

Author: Don Pendleton

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars

Genre: Thriller

Pages: 110

 

 

Synopsis:

Mack sniffs out a Mafia Man who might be going big, only to discover the guy is a two bit masher. So the real mystery is who is behind the Don and what are their nefarious plans?

And we're introduced to some Peace and Love chick who Bolan seems to fall in love with.

 

My Thoughts:

First,not a huge fan of these new ebook covers. They're lifeless and have NONE of the pulpy zip and zang of the 70's and 80's releases. Oh well, at least there are some legit ebook releases now. I am glad for that.

 

Bolan is beginning to realize that corrupt politicians and power mongers are just as bad, and maybe more prevalent, than the Mafia. With his code of honor, that puts them out of his range for the most part. So far he has always allowed Brognola [his friend inside Washington] to take down the Legitimate Targets from within the Legal System.

 

In this book, we see him take out a non-Mafia target. It felt like a line had been crossed. It also felt like the girl in this book might be more than just the one book bimbo. We'll see if she comes back. If she does, I know she'll die at some point. Mack doesn't get to be happy.

The Pipeline and the Paradigm: Keystone XL, Tar Sands, and the Battle to Defuse the Carbon Bomb - Samuel Avery, Foreword by Bill McKibben I received a free ARC of this book via NetGalley.

I enjoyed Sam Avery's book about the Keystone XL pipeline. He's a solar installer and environmentalist, but is also pragmatic about our dependence upon fossil fuels.

Avery travels the length of the proposed pipeline, interviewing folks along the way. He talks to people who are extremely concerned about the environment, people who are concerned about property rights, people who think the pipeline is a good idea - people all over the spectrum. He asks all of them what they think about the environmental impact of the pipeline.

That's the "pipeline" of the title. The other part of the book discusses the environmental versus economic way of looking at the world; the paradigm from which we view the pipeline.

I appreciated the balance Avery brings to the book. He comes with a definite opinion (he writes about taking part in nonviolent protests against the pipeline), but treats his interview subjects, and their opinions, with respect.

Recommended.

The Question: Pipeline - Greg Rucka,Cully Hamner The Question, Renee Montoya, is contacted by a man who is desperately looking for his sister. After doing some investigation, Renee finds that the girl has been kidnapped by traffickers. Once Renee recovers the man's sister along with some other women who had been kidnapped, she makes it her mission to find out who runs the trafficking ring and bring them down. Along the way, she teams up with Huntress whose money and skills come in handy for Renee's operation.

I loved this story. I thought it was well-crafted with just enough action and just enough storytelling to keep me engaged. Renee is such an interesting character, and it's great to see her getting the exposure she needs by giving her a role that highly suits her. The story takes a bit of an unexpected twist toward the end. I expected many things to happen, but it went the last place that would've come to my mind, and the ending had me holding my breath a little and wondering what comic I needed to read to get the answer to the question (no pun intended) it ended with.
